CCDS HISTORY
The Colorado Legislature created CCD in 1967. Three years later, classes began in a renovated auto showroom close to Denvers Civic Center. Enrollment increased so rapidly, the college immediately expanded into rental storefronts near the main building.
In 1975, CCD moved to the 124-acre Auraria Higher Education Center Campus in downtown Denver. It sits on the west bank of Cherry Creek, originally the site of the 1858 frontier town of Auraria. We even have the oldest-standing structure in Denver on our campus, the former Temple Emmanuel. Today, the Emmanuel Gallery is an exhibition space for student and faculty artwork.
CCD is one of 14 institutions in the Community Colleges of Colorado

ADMISSION POLICY
As an open-door institution, CCD admits students who are 16 years of age or older. Admission to the college does not guarantee enrollment in specific programs that may have prerequisites. The college may deny admission to individuals whose backgrounds indicate their presence would endanger the health, safety, welfare or property of others, or would interfere with the function of the college. CCD has the right to deny admission or continued enrollment to persons who have misrepresented their credentials or backgrounds.
MANDATORY BASIC SKILLS ASSESSMENT AND PLACEMENT
In accordance with Colorado House Bill 1464, fall 2001 first-time entering college students who declare a degree or certificate program are required to place into courses based on their Basic Skills Assessment Test (BSAT) results. Also, students registering for any English or mathematics course, or any course that requires English, mathematics or reading prerequisite skills, are required to test and place into these courses based on the BSAT
results. This new legislative regulation is to ensure that students are prepared to succeed in college-level courses.
CCD faculty and staff will advise and help students register for appropriate-level courses. Students will be prevented from registering for courses for which they do not have the appropriate test score or for which they have not completed the prerequisite course(s). House Bill 1464 requires students, within their first 30 credit hours of enrollment, to complete all mandatory basic skills courses. Students who receive state financial aid may lose funding if basic skill course work is not completed within the 30-credit-hour limit. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Please see the Assessment section of the catalog for more information on the Basic Skills Assessment Test.

GETTING STARTED
VETERANS ACADEMIC STANDARDS OF PROGRESS
The following policy applies to all students who are eligible to receive Veterans educational benefits, i.e., veterans and their dependants.
1. Grade Point Requirements Veterans must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for all course work attempted.
Veterans whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation for the following term. If the GPA is not raised to
2.0 during the probationary term, the veteran will be suspended for one academic term. Reinstatement will occur only after approved counseling.
Suspension of the veteran under the Veterans Academic Standards of Progress Policy will result in CCDs not certifying enrollment to the VA. Veterans in this status may still attend CCD; however, they will be subject to the provisions of the Academic Standards of Progress Policy requirements for continuation of enrollment.
2. Other Special Grades
AU Grade indicates the student audited the course. No credit is allowed for audited courses, nor is the grade certifiable to the VA.
I Grade indicates incomplete. An incomplete or I grade must be made up no later than the next consecutive 15-week semester. For veterans, if an I grade is not completed in this required period, the 1 will revert to a NC (no credit) and the veterans certification will be adjusted back to the
beginning date of the term in which the I grade was received.
SP Grade indicates satisfactory progress, which will be treated the same as an 1, incomplete grade.
3. Attendance
Veterans who stop attending class, but who do not officially withdraw, may be dropped administratively. VA certification will be adjusted accordingly.
4. Mitigating Circumstances
(As defined by P.L. 94-502) Mitigating circumstances that directly hinder an eligible veterans or other persons pursuit of a course are judged to be out of the students control. Following are some general categories of mitigating circumstances (not all conclusive):
a. serious illness of the eligible veteran or person.
b. serious illness or death in the eligible veterans or other persons immediate family.
c. immediate family or financial obligations that require a change in terms or place of employment, precluding pursuit of course work.
d. discontinuance of a course by the college.
e. active military duty, including active duty for training.
f. withdrawal from a course or receipt of a non-punitive grade upon completion of a course due to unsatisfactory work may be considered mitigating circumstances if the student can demonstrate good faith pursuit of the course up to the point of withdrawal or completion. You must submit evidence that you
applied for tutorial aid, consulted a VA counselor or consulted a CCD academic counselor or advisor in an attempt to remedy the unsatisfactory work before withdrawal or completion.

Financial aid funds are limited, and we encourage students to start the application process several months before enrolling. Information brochures and applications are available in Financial Aid, South Classroom Building, room 135, 303-556-2420, and at all branch campuses (see listing/addresses on page vii).

The term access includes reading, deleting, moving, changing access privileges, or affecting files, data, etc., in any unauthorized manner.
sending chain letters or jokes of any nature.

V. E-mail Ethics and Good Practices
E-mail is not like a phone call. More information, including copies of the content of your messages, is routinely recorded about the use of e-mail than about your use of the telephone. A broader, less controlled set of people have access to that information.
E-mail is not like a letter in an envelope, and there is no easy way to mark a message confidential.
E-mail is most like a postcard.
The contents of your message may be viewed during the mailing process. If there is a problem with routing, a postmaster may read your message to try to redirect it correctly. Your message can be forwarded or printed.
Dont put anything in an e-mail message that you would not want posted on a bulletin board, used in a lawsuit or shared with the wrong person.
Do use professional, courteous language that will not embarrass you later. Its much easier to edit a message before you send it, than to send an apology later. If you receive mail that was not intended for you, send an appropriate reply to the sender.
CCDs e-mail systems are developed and maintained to accomplish the work of the college. They can be used for academic pursuits and related administrative tasks, abiding by all applicable guidelines and policies. A minimal amount of personal use is acceptable, however use good judgment and limit the amount and frequency of such use. CCD e-mail systems cannot be used for personal gain.
Help conserve e-mail resources. If you flood the system with trivia, it will not be available for other, more worthwhile uses. Never send junk mail or Who are you? messages.
Limit your use of lists as much as possible. Many of the global e-mail lists are available in other forms such as the World Wide Web. If you subscribe to a list, always make sure you know how to unsubscribe from that list, and do so when you no longer have a use for the information from the list, or when you are going to be away from the CCD for an extended time.
Be careful when sending to e-mail lists. Sending large messages to lists that have hundreds of users can dramatically impact both the e-mail system you are using to send the message and the e-mail systems receiving the message.
Before sending to any list or replying to any message from a list, make sure you know the guidelines and policies of that list and you are aware of where your message is going (to the whole list, or just the person that sent the original message).
Let integrity and honesty guide your use of e-mail, and it will be an effective, useful tool.
FAMILY EDUCATION RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT OF 1974
This act protects the privacy of education records, establishes the right of students to inspect and review their educational records and provides guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings.
Students have the right to file complaints with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act Office (FERPA) concerning alleged failures by CCD to comply with the act.
The CCD policy explains in detail the procedures to be used by the institution for compliance with the acts provisions. Copies of the policy are available from Admissions, Registration and Records and the vice president for Student Services. These offices also maintain a Directory of Records that lists all educational records maintained on students by CCD.
Please refer questions about the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act to Admissions, Registration and Records, 303-556-2430.

Grade appeals go to the dean responsible for the course, then to the vice president for Learning.
GRADE POINT AVERAGE
Grade points measure your achievement for the number of credits completed. To calculate your grade point average (GPA), multiply the number of grade points by the number of credits for each course. Total the credits and points, then divide the grade points by the total number of credits.
A = 4 grade points B = 3 grade points C = 2 grade points D = 1 grade point F = 0 grade points
Course ANT 111 Physical Credits Grade Points
Anthropology 3 A 12(3x4)

Intro.to Computing 3 B 9(3x3)
ENG 121
English Comp. Essay Writing 3 D 3(3x1)
POS 111
American Government 3 F 0(3x0)
TOTALS 17 41
Total grade points divided by total credits equals the cumulative grade point average. Therefore, the grade point average for the above example is 41 divided by 17 for a 2.41 GPA.
Note: All other grades (Credit/No Credit, SP, I, W, AU, AW) are not calculated into the CCD GPA.
The following example will help you calculate your grade point average:

COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER CATALOG 2001-2002


GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE FOR STUDENTS
THE OBJECTIVE OF THESE PROCEDURES IS TO PROVIDE FOR THE PROMPT, FAIR AND EQUITABLE RESOLUTION OF ALL STUDENT GRIEVANCES. IF YOU BELIEVE YOUR RIGHTS OR FREEDOMS HAVE BEEN VIOLATED, YOU ARE ADVISED TO USE THE GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE.
THIS PROCEDURE IS NOT INTENDED TO BE USED WHEN THE COLLEGE TAKES DISCIPLINARY ACTION AGAINST A STUDENT FOR VIOLATION OF THE STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT OR RELATED STUDENT ACTIONS. GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES COULD APPLY TO COLLEGE ADMISSIONS, ACCESS TO THE COLLEGE, TREATMENT BY THE COLLEGE IN ITS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, OR COLLEGE ACTIVITIES.
Student rights and freedoms include, but are not limited to, such things as nondiscrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age and sexual preference, as well as sexual harassment and other provisions of the Students Rights and Responsibilities College Policy.
We hope our students will attempt to resolve problems first through the informal grievance procedure (Step 1 below). If the grievance is not resolved satisfactorily through the informal procedure as detailed in Step 1, students may file a formal written grievance (Step 2). Petitions for change of grade are limited to Step 1. Where a student is uncomfortable discussing the harassment with the alleged harasser, s/he may satisfy the first step by working directly with Felicia Sykes, vice president for Student Services, SO 301,303-556-2413.
DEFINITIONS
A. Grievant: Enrolled student, a client or volunteer who is provid-
ing a service to benefit the college under the supervision and control of a college employee. A client or volunteer may only grieve a decision that bans him or her from the campus.
B. Grievance: A grievable offense is any alleged action that violates or inequitably applies written college policies or procedures. The grievant must be personally affected by such violation or inequitable action. A grievance must be brought to the formal stage within 20 calendar days of the date the student knew or reasonably should have known about the action.
C. Vice President for Student Services: The college employee designated by the college president to administer student grievances. Grievances alleging discrimination issues may be referred to the employee responsible for ensuring equal opportunity and access.
D. Remedy: The relief the grievant is requesting.
E Respondent(s): Another student, volunteer, client, faculty member and/or administrator identified by the grievant as causing or contributing to the grievance.
F. Non-grievable matters: The following matters are not grievable under this procedure except as noted: any matter over which the college is without authority to act; grades and other academic decisions unless there is an allegation that the decision was motivated by illegal discrimination; and disciplinary actions taken pursuant to SBCGOE Policy 4-30.
STEP 1 INFORMAL GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE
Grievant is encouraged to resolve the issue with the respondent or his/her supervisor. In the case of grievances based on race, color, creed, national origin or ancestry, disability, age or gender, the grievant may first contact the college employee responsible for affirmative action to seek informal resolution of the issues. If the complaint alleges facts that might constitute a violation of state policy SP3-120B, concerning sexual harassment, the administrator shall investigate and process the complaint under that procedure. While the grievant is encouraged to resolve the issues through the informal process, he or she may at any time elect to go to the formal stage by following the process outlined below.
STEP 2-FORMAL GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE
A. Grievant timely files a written statement of the actions complained of and describes the
37


remedy he or she is seeking with the vice president for Student Services or designee. A matter could also be referred to this process by the college president or his/her designee. Once a written grievance is filed or referred, the vice president for Student Services or designee will determine whether or not the situation is a grievable offense. The matter will be closed if the situation is determined not grievable and the grievant will be notified of the reasons.
B. If the matter is determined to be grievable, the vice president for Student Services or designee (may be an individual or a committee) shall hear the grievance. A hearing will be held that will give the grievant, respondent and others
invited to appear, the opportunity to explain what they know about the issues surrounding the grievance. Considering the oral and written statements and documents, the vice president for Student Services or designee shall issue a decision within 10 calendar days of close of the hearing. The decision shall be served upon the grievant and the respondent personally or by certified mail to the addresses on file in Admissions, Registration and Records. The decision shall reject the grievance or grant the grievance and make recommenda-tion(s) to resolve the issue(s).
The vice president for Student Services or designees decision is final unless a Petition for Review is filed with the president by either party within five (5) calendar days of service of the decision.
C. Upon receipt of a Petition for Review, the college president will review the record and issue a written decision within 10 calendar days of receipt of the Petition for Review. The presidents decision is final.
D. The vice president for Student Services or designee may extend the scheduling timelines described above for good cause.
E. If the grievance is against the vice president for Student Services, the vice president for Learning or other person designated by the president shall perform the duties of the vice president for Student Services.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
THE OFFERINGS WITHIN THE CORE CURRICULUM PROVIDE A BALANCED, BROADLY-BASED PROGRAM THAT WILL REQUIRE STUDENTS TO DEVELOP CRITICAL THINKING AND PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS, TO ANALYZE, SYNTHESIZE AND COMMUNICATE INFORMATION, AND TO USE KNOWLEDGE AND TECHNOLOGY INTELLIGENTLY AND RESPONSIBLY.
DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
All degrees and certificates will list the degree or certificate only, not the emphasis.
If you are applying for a Community College of Denver (CCD) degree program, you must meet all of the following requirements. The vice president for Learning may approve exceptions.
1. Complete a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit in approved course work.
2. Earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C average). Courses counting toward the general education core curriculum must be completed with a grade of C or higher. Some programs, as stated in the current catalog, may require a student to earn at least a C in specific course work. Students should check with their instructional center, case manager or advisor for information about the minimum grade point average requirement.
3. Complete a minimum of 15 credits at CCD in the program area.
4. Complete the Academic Profile, a general education assessment, during your final academic semester.
5. Complete your programs Capstone course with a C or better grade.
6. Complete all courses taken to fulfill general education requirements with a C or better.
7. Complete the required survey of all graduating students.
GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
All associate degrees have general education requirements that meet goals for general education established by the State Board for Colorado Community Colleges and Occupational Education. They are:
1. to build skills for advanced and lifelong learning.
2. to expose students to the mainstream of thought and interpretation in the humanities, sciences, mathematics, social sciences, communications and the arts.
3. to integrate learning in ways that cultivate a students broad understanding and ability to think about a large and complex subject, formulate and analyze valid concepts, solve problems and clarify values.
In addition, the following rationale for the Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) general education core curriculum was developed by AA/AS faculty and adopted by CCD, the Community Colleges of Colorado System and the Colorado Commission on Higher Education.
General education addresses the needs of all students regardless of program area, degree sought, or major since all people share certain experiences and have certain life goals that are unrelated to any specific discipline of study. The core curriculum is that set of courses that satisfies the general education portion of the requirements for an AA, an AS, or an Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree. All courses in the core curriculum are designed to transfer to baccalaureate, degree-granting colleges and universities. Core courses are academically rigorous and of such quality that transfer students may be assured of their ability to compete successfully on transfer.
The offerings within the core curriculum are designed to stimulate students to think deeply, clearly and logically about a variety of human questions. These offerings provide a balanced, broadly-based program that will require students to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, to analyze, synthesize and communicate information, and to use knowledge and technology intelligently and responsibly.
These core offerings:
expose students to the mainstreams of thought and interpretation in humanities, sciences, communications, mathematics, social sciences and arts, and develop students understanding of the interrelationships among these fields of study.
expand students interpersonal, intercultural and international understanding and develop their perceptions of the evolving nature of societies and the interdependence among all peoples.
39


develop students skills in selfunderstanding, oral and written communication, numerical calculations and reasoning to help them achieve personal independence.
develop students skills in leadership and in group dynamics.
increase students knowledge of the value of physical and environmental well-being to help them fulfill their roles as citizens within a free and changing society.
CERTIFICATE REQUIREMENTS
All CCD certificate program graduates must meet the following requirements. The vice president for Learning may approve exceptions.
1. Complete the specified requirements of an approved vocational/ technical program.
2. Earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C). Some programs, as stated in the current catalog, may require you to earn at least a
C grade in specific course work. Check with your instructional center and your advisor for information about the minimum grade point average required for graduation.
3. Complete a minimum of 15 credits in the program area at CCD.
4. Complete the Capstone course.
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

Students must take at least 15 credit hours at CCD to receive a diploma from this institution.
OTHER GRADUATION POLICIES
1. You must apply for graduation one semester prior to the semester in which you wish to graduate.
2. You can apply no more than six semester hours of courses numbered 299 (independent study course work) toward an associate degree program.

4. Degrees and certificates will be granted during the semester in which the final requirements are completed. For example, if you receive an I grade in a course required for graduation in your final semester, you will not graduate until the semester in which the I grade is replaced by a letter grade. During that semester, you must reapply for graduation. You will not need to retake the Academic Profile.
CATALOG REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION
You may graduate under the catalog requirements listed for the academic year in which you were first enrolled. If you interrupt attendance for one year or more and then return, the catalog of the re-admission year is the document of authority. If graduation requirements and policies change, you may choose to follow the catalog of the year of initial entry or the current catalog. Obtain and keep a copy of the catalog published the year in which you enter or are re-admitted. The instructional center or program will determine the extent to which semester credit hours previously earned will apply to degree requirements listed in the most current college catalog.
The catalog should not be considered a contract between you and CCD. The college retains the right to cancel or change programs or course offerings where enrollments are insufficient or for any other reason. Every course listed in the catalog may not be offered every semester.
PETITIONING FOR WAIVERS AND/OR PROGRAM SUBSTITUTIONS

READING GUIDE TO DEGREE AND CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS
DEFINITIONS
Area of Emphasis
In the Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) degree programs, the area of emphasis refers to 12 or more credit hours in a subject field in preparation for transfer and selection of a major at a baccalaureate college.
Capstone Courses
These are courses, usually taken during the final semester, in which program competencies are reviewed and assessed. All courses identified as capstone courses require a grade of C or better for graduation. Capstone courses must be taken at CCD.
Core Curriculum
These are courses that fulfill lower-division general education requirements as defined and agreed on between the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education and the governing boards of all public four-year institutions in Colorado.
Corequisite
This is a course or requirement that must be completed during the same semester as the course that identifies the corequisite.
Credit Hour
This is the basic unit of academic credit. Generally, one-credit hour is earned by attending a lecture class for a 50-minute period, once a week, for a full semester. In a laboratory course, one-credit hour is granted for two-to-three 50-minute periods per week in the laboratory.
Credit Hours in Parenthesis
Course options from which you may choose. These options are not individ-
ually included in the total credit hours listed below the numbers in parentheses.
General Education
General education is the liberal arts component of a baccalaureate degree that may include lower-division and upper-division courses as defined by each institution.
Open Entry
This course designation allows the student to start at any time prior to the last date to drop classes published in the Schedule of Classes. The student must complete all course requirements by the end of the semester, regardless of entry date.
Open Entry/Open Exit
This course designation allows students to enroll at any time prior to the last date to drop classes and progress at their own learning pace. If the student does not complete course requirements by the end of the semester, an SP (Satisfactory Progress) grade is given, and the student may continue in the course the following semester at no additional tuition charge.
Prerequisite
This is a required course that must be completed satisfactorily before registering for the course that identifies that prerequisite.
Speech Intensive Courses
Associate of Applied Science Speech Intensive courses combine the requirements of SPE 115 with the content of vocational classes.
Students who transfer a course from another college that is noted as speech intensive at CCD may meet the SPE 115 requirements only by taking SPE 115 as a separate course.

ASSOCIATE OF ARTS DEGREE
University Parallel, Transfer Program
CCD Auraria
An Associate of Arts (AA) degree provides a learning foundation in communications, social sciences, arts or humanities. Some students work toward the Associate of Arts degree for purposes of personal enrichment. Many others plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to continue their work toward baccalaureate degrees and pre-professional training in such fields as law, education, the arts and social sciences. A student can complete this program in four semesters, going full-time and carrying the required number of hours. A student may choose, due to personal circumstances, to extend the amount of time for completion.
The Associate of Arts degree is sometimes referred to as a university parallel or transfer degree. The general education core requirements, when completed at CCD, meet the lower-division general education requirements of all public baccalaureate colleges and universities in the state of Colorado. Students graduating with the AA degree may transfer into liberal arts programs in all public baccalaureate colleges and universities with junior standing. Courses to be counted toward the general education core curriculum must be completed with a grade of C or higher. Students planning to transfer should familiarize themselves with the full requirements of the school they plan to attend. These are available in the Transfer Center in South Classroom Building, room 134.
Student Performance Objectives for Transfer Education (AA Degree)
Students will plan and write well-structured compositions demonstrating the writing capabilities to express, inform, analyze, evaluate, persuade, argue, conduct research, and use primary and secondary sources logically and stylistically.
Students will compose and deliver oral presentations, providing ideas and information and using delivery skills suitable to the topic, purpose and audience. Students will demonstrate an understanding of speeches and be able to evaluate speeches.
Students will read and think critically about a variety of interdisciplinary topics, demonstrating college-level reading skills in a variety of disciplines, including humanities, social sciences and the natural sciences.
Students will demonstrate orally and in writing the critical-thinking skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
Students will analyze and use numerical data and qualitative reasoning skills, including applying proper formulas to mathematical data and calculating results, illustrating quantitative data graphically, rearranging general formulas to solve for any missing information, and interpreting graphic data and assessing the importance of the portrayed trends.
AA Degree Program Entry
Students must apply for entry to the AA degree program.
Students are encouraged to apply to a program by the time they have completed 12 credits of 100-level college-transfer courses. At the time of application, students are encouraged to identify an area of emphasis. Program application forms are in South Classroom Building, room 134, and all academic center offices. Students should obtain an Advising Transcript from Admissions, Registration and Records and attach it to the program application.
Program Admission Requirements
Meet minimum assessment scores or prerequisites required for general education courses in the program.
1. Meet with a faculty program advisor and obtain an authorized signature.
AA Degree Program Requirements
Within the AA degree, the college offers 14 areas of program emphasis: Art, Arts Management, Behavioral Sciences, Communications, Economics, English/Literature, History, Humanities/Philosophy, Music, Photography, Political Sciences, Speech or Theatre. The same course may not count toward both general education requirements and toward an area of emphasis. An area of emphasis consists of four identified courses in one academic area. If students do not select an area of emphasis or have fewer than 60 credit hours with their core courses and area of emphasis, they should take transfer electives as needed to complete the 60 credit hours required for the AA degree. Up to 3 credits of physical education may apply toward this degree. All general education core and capstone courses must be completed with a C grade or better. All graduates of the AA degree must meet the following program requirements.

The AS degree provides a learning foundation in mathematics and the sciences. Although some students work toward the AS degree for personal enrichment, many plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to continue work toward a baccalaureate degree and professional training in such fields as engineering, medicine, mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics. A student can complete this program in four semesters, going full-time and carrying the required number of hours. A student may choose, due to personal circumstances, to extend the amount of time for completion.
The AS degree is sometimes referred to as a university parallel or transfer degree. The general education core requirements, when completed at CCD, meet the lower-division general education requirements of all public Colorado baccalaureate colleges and universities in the state of Colorado. Students graduating with the AS degree may transfer into liberal arts or sciences programs in all public baccalaureate colleges and universities with junior standing. Courses to be counted toward the general education core curriculum must be completed with a grade of C or higher. Students planning to transfer should familiarize themselves with the full requirements of the school they plan to attend. These are available in the Transfer Center in South Classroom Building, room 134.

ASSOCIATE OF GENERAL STUDIES DEGREE
CCD Auraria
CCD offers two types of Associate of General Studies degrees.
Both require the lower division core general education courses that transfer to all majors at all state baccalaureate colleges and universities. Only grades of C or better are acceptable for the core general education requirements. Up to three credits of physical education may apply toward this degree.
1. Associate of General Studies-Generalist Degree (AGS-G)
In addition to the general education core requirements, the degree allows students to self-select 23 credits of transfer and/or career courses. The general education core courses fully meet the general education requirements of all baccalaureate schools. Transferability of career courses is not guaranteed. If students select this option, they should consult with a faculty advisor/ case manager. Students are encouraged to develop specific career goals and to transfer to the CCD degree program appropriate to those goals. A student can complete this program in four semesters, going full-time and carrying the required number of hours. A student may choose, due to personal circumstances, to extend the amount of time for completion.
The AGS-G degree is the only degree that does not require application for program entry. All CCD certificate and degreeseeking students are classified AGS-Generalist students until
52
COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER CATALOG 2001-2002


they apply and are accepted into another certificate or degree program. Any CCD career/vocational course from any CCD campus may count as an elective for the AGS-G degree. All students who pursue this degree plan should be assigned to a faculty advisor after completing 12 credit hours.
Program Admission Requirements None
2. All other Associate of General Studies (AGS) Degrees
Most AGS degrees (with the exception of the AGS-G degree) are the result of articulation agreements and provide a transfer option for students in vocational programs. The career courses are fully transferable only into the particular program and college identified by the articulation agreement. Consult with a faculty advisor.
Students must apply for entry. Students are encouraged to apply to a program by the time they have completed 12 credits of 100-level courses. At the time of application, students must identify which Associate of General Studies degree program they want to enter. Program application forms are in South Classroom Building, room 134, and appropriate academic center offices. Entry requirements are the same as for the matching AAS degree.
Program Admission Requirements
See individual articulated degree options.
Credit Hours
Credits are the hours of credit awarded to the course. An associate degree requires a minimum of 60 credits. Credit hours in parenthesis, e.g., (3), are options from which students may choose.
They are not included in the total credit hours listed below. An average full-time student course load is 15 credit hours. An AGS degree of 60 credit hours takes four semesters of 15 credits each semester, assuming that all courses count toward the degree. AGS degrees of more than 60 credit hours may take more than four semesters to complete.

ASSOCIATE OF GENERAL STUDIES-GENERALIST DEGREE (AGS-G)
CCD Auraria
All CCD certificate and degree-seeking students are classified as AGS-G students until they apply and are accepted into another certificate or degree program. Students remain in the AGS-G program if they want to complete a broad program of both career and transfer courses without the constraints of specialization.
The AGS-G general education core curriculum transfers to and fully meets the lower-division general education requirements of all public baccalaureate colleges and universities in Colorado. Transferability of AGS-G career courses depends on the courses taken and the receiving institution. All students who have completed 12 college-level credits should see a faculty advisor in their area of interest.
Students may take either the AA core curriculum or the AS core curriculum. The AA core follows.

General Education Requirements
The outcomes of general education and related studies are recognized as integral components of associate degree education. Increasingly, the ability to think, reason, compute and communicate are essential if citizens are to remain employable and compete with expanding knowledge. General education also includes human development in civic, consumer, environmental and social responsibilities. Related studies typically achieve a dual purpose of enhancing general human development and providing a basic foundation for the pursuit of more advanced degrees and careers.
Transfer of Courses and a Complete Online Degree
The degrees described here are designed for the student who wishes to complete the degree entirely over the Internet. If all courses are taken, the student will have met all the course requirements for the AAS degree and, along with the above stated requirements, be eligible to graduate from any of the CCC Online colleges. If students wish to mix their course work between online courses and campus-based courses, students may use the courses they take onsite, transfer in courses taken at other colleges, and may receive credit for prior learning to gather the necessary requirements.

BUSINESS TECHNOLOGY
Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Technology These Business Technology program options are designed to prepare students for entry-level positions and advancement in business, governmental and medical agencies, and other institutions that employ persons in secretarial and administrative support areas.
Occupational opportunities and salaries vary by skill, educational training, level of work experience and geographic location. As businesses increase the use of word processing and as electronic and voice message systems improve and expand, secretaries and administrative assistants will continue to increase their efficiency. While these modernizations reduce demand for some secretarial services, there is a trend toward delegating some administrative and managerial work to secretaries. Given the many technological advances, there are many personal skills, such as scheduling meetings and conferences, training other office-support workers and making travel arrangements that cannot be automated. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects nearly 514,000 openings per year in the future, primarily from replacement needs. Highly qualified secretaries and administrative assistants with the ability to integrate software systems increasingly will be in demand.

R ein tate ment will occur only after approved counseling Suspen ion of the veteran under the Veteran' Academic Standards of Progre s Policy will result in CCD not certifying enrollment to the VA. Veteran in this status may still attend CCD; however, they will be s u bject to the prov i s i ons of the Academic Standar d s of Progre s P olicy requ irements for con tinuation of enrollment. 2 Other Special Grades A U Grade indicates the student audited the cour e. 0 credit i s allowed for audited cour es, nor is the g rade certifiable to the VA.

Mitigating Circum s tance s (As defined by P .L. 94-502 ) Mitigating circumstances that directly hinder an eligible veter a n's or othe r person's purs uit of a course are judged to be o u t of the stude nt's control. Following a r e some gen e r a l categories of mit i gating circum stances ( not all conelu ive): a. serious illness of the eligib l e veteran or per on. b. eriou illness or death in the eligible veteran s or other per on s immediate family. c. immediate famil y or financ i a l obligations t h at require a c h a nge i n t erms or p lace of emp loyment preclu ding pursuit of course work. d. discontinuance of a course by the college. e. active military duty including active duty for training. f. withdrawal from a cour e or receipt of a non-punitive grad e upo n comp l e tion of a course due to u n sat isfact ory work may be con s i dered mit igating cir cumstance if the student can demonstrate good faith pursuit of the course up to the point of withdrawal or completion. You must submit evidence that you applied for tutorial aid, con ulted a VA counselor o r consulted a CCD academic cou nselor or advisor in an attempt to remedy t h e u n ati factory work before withd rawal o r com p l et i on.
